The videos on here are ones that have been officially released from law enforcement and sometimes supplement with phone videos from “lay persons” ie bystanders or reporters.
The purpose is dissemination of information - to report what happened and give visual reference. It allows the public another way to absorb material and make up their own minds as to what actually occurred.
Re-showing the videos of the officer as he sat dying in his patrol car is not needed in this case. We know what happens when someone is shot and then dies.

It’s also out of respect for his family - the blood and blue
